The left scream "racist" ("Is racism behind hatred of President Obama?" Forum, Oct. 29). I would vote for Ben Carson without hesitation ("Pitts: Ben Carson sinks to a new low," Opinion, Oct. 16).
I could care less what heritage Obama has; there are many of us who do not like his policies. We want fiscal responsibility and smaller government. We want freedom and individual responsibility, not handouts and dependency.
We believe in hard work to get what we want and want others to do the same. These days there are excuses for everyone who is on welfare, SNAP and the rest. If someone needs a hand up, fine, but those who want a handout forever, no.
